It is a shame to see how such a formerly well-known and ideally located hotel is allowed to slide into mediocrity; the owners obviously are not bothered to at least maintain and keep up the existing hotel infrastructure ... Whilst the lobby area is all nice and neat ..once you get up to the rooms the picture changes. Mouldy wallpaper,...

Over 25 years ago this was one of Colombo's top hotels today it could be no more than a hostel once you get to the room floors. The Lobby still holds a little grandeur. Basically the Gold Hotel name at the entrance is an indication of the let down to be expected. - Broken letter. Filthy stained carpets, pealed stained...

Hotel is good, by and large staff is good and supportive. But a person named Sanan, Front Office Manager is very rrigid and non supportive person. He does not understand the need of the customer. No flexibility.

First time to colombo and only stay here for 2 days 2 night. The hotel offers in-house taxi to show us around (temples and city tour mostly), costing Rs 900 (approx USD 6). All the staffs are super friendly. The hotel is very strategically located opposite presidential palace, 5 mins walk to the famous Dutch Hospital and overlooking the beach.
